Remember Silverlight, anyone?

Once again Microsoft has tried to invent its own platform to compete against its competitors, then gave up when no one gave a flip about it.

Calling it an 'experiment' then pulling the plug on it is equivalent to the American troops 'declaring victory' and pulling out of Vietnam. Admit it Microsoft, it was bleeding money and the accountants aren't too happy.
